How to Make Money Blogging

Maybe you’ve already tasted the freedom of working from home but you’re struggling to make money blogging. Or maybe you want to work from home as a business blogger, but you’re just not sure how to get started. Either way, I totally understand. In fact, I’ve been there.

Blogging has been one of those most unbelievable, “Thank You Lord” parts of my life. I can hardly believe I get to do something I love so much, earn money from home, and gain recognition.  But it isn’t always easy and the fast-changing nature of the blog industry means I can’t ever stop learning how to be a better blogger.

When it comes to running and growing your blog (business), there have been so many times in my own blogging journey when I had to overcome challenges like increasing my traffic and income in ways that matched my brand and values.

For all of your big dreams, maybe you’ve felt frustrated, confused, or stuck at times trying to figure out how to grow your blog, get more traffic, overcome hurdles, find smart strategies, and earn more money.

Don’t you wish you could just call up your favorite bloggers, ask them out for coffee, and soak up the wisdom as they share their most effective tips and tricks? I’ll let you in on a little secret… if you follow these 7 simple steps, not only will you have a successful blog and will make money as a blogger, you’ll become your favorite blogger.

How To Make Money Blogging

Discover Your niche

There are so many things you can write about.  You can write about things you are passionate about; i.e. cooking?  Things you love to do; i.e. traveling? Your topics that are currently trending in social media. If you are not sure about what your niche should be you can use the search box on Pinterest and begin writing on something you are curious about and start there.

Brainstorm Blog Post Ideas

If you’re in a creative industry, then there’s nothing worse than getting a spell of what writers would describe as “writer’s block.” Sometimes, it feels like we’re full of ideas; at others, it can seem like no matter how hard we try, just nothing will come. However, it’s important to remember that there’ll always be ways to bring yourself out of your slump. I recommend brainstorming blog post ideas early in this process.

Setup blog

  1. Get A Domain Name
  2. Get Hosting 
  3. Install WordPress (free) 
  4. Pick A Theme
  5. Design Your Blog

Start  Blogging

When you attract new readers, wow them with your writing, sell them something they’ll love, and do it all consistently as part of your busy schedule. This is your engine for expanding your impact and your income. If you have no idea where to begin, use these 40 blog post ideas to get you started.

Drive Traffic To Your Blog

Blogs are growing in popularity, with both business and personal blogs taking over the internet and social media. When you spend time writing a blog, you want people to read it; that’s kind of the whole point! Driving traffic to your blog to get readers and eventually turn those readers into customers is the idea if you’re a business blogger. If you have a personal blog, you want to get your thoughts and opinions out for the public to see.  Either way, engaging them by joining a facebook group is what I recommend.

Don’t Stop Until Your Blog Is Engaging 

After years of most people dismissing blogs, they’re finally starting to realize just how important a blog is, especially for their businesses. It is the secret ingredient to succeeding in the twenty-first century. The problem is, many people still aren’t quite sure how to make their blogs engaging. Yes, they post high-quality content and they do so regularly, but something is still amiss and, more often than not, that thing is engagement. This element is absolutely essential when it comes to making your blog a major success. I recommend using your email list and sharing on social media.

Add Value to Your Blog

There are many ways to add value to your blog. The question you need to ask yourself is “How can my blog help my audience.”  I recommend providing advice, creating ebooks, offering online courses, offering services, selling helpful products, reviewing products, and affiliate marketing.
I love blogging and I feel so fortunate to do what I do. I enjoy sharing what I’m passionate about, and also the “earning an income” part while doing it.  Do you think blogging is for you? Would you try writing your first article? Can you earn income blogging? Can you make money blogging? Do you make money from home? What are your thoughts? Please share in the comments below. I really would love to know.
Until next time, shine amongst the stars!
